Just look for A3-02 and if you are a sucker for fuel economy, A1-02.
If you are driving one of those GDI engined cars from Mitsubishi, I suggest you look for A4-xx.
A3-02 means it will stay in grade. If it is 40wt, you whack the engine, it will not shear to pieces. Also means the oil is long drain. Can extend to 16k km if you want!
A1-02 means oil very thin and lubricates fast.
A4-xx means it got lean mixture operating capability. Something GDI engines should use.
There is another magic one called A5-02. Basically somewhat like A3 and A1 combined. Cannot find an oil that is A5-02.
